Hagi apparently returned to basic training well ahead of schedule.


1.) 08 May 2022 12:12:03
Good Beas, hopefully fully fit when pre season starts.


2.) 08 May 2022 13:41:30
Definitely John.


3.) 08 May 2022 14:16:24
There was talk of Morelos maybe making the final. Any update on that John?


4.) 08 May 2022 15:34:44
Basic training u an army man ger88.


5.) 08 May 2022 17:44:36
Seeker cannot see it.


6.) 08 May 2022 17:53:58
Honestly think big joe is class for us upfront 😂 don’t mess with a winning formula 😆.


7.) 08 May 2022 18:42:16
Basic training generally just covers back running on the grass or gym work I believe mate, and no not specifically an army man.


8.) 08 May 2022 20:51:53
Pity, thanks John.


 

 

26 Apr 2022 12:22:02
p. s I know ivrblue posted this a couple days ago but this is just some more information on the lad and his situation.


 

 

26 Apr 2022 12:20:05
Looking at Eric Martel, 6'1 CB or holding midfielder ironically from RB Leipzig. 19 years old only 1 appearance for RB first team, has been loaned at Austria Vienna last 18 months and still has a year on RB cntract bit they are prepared to cut ties in the summer and release him. 5 German u21 caps apart from that know next to nothing about the boy other than teams in bundlesliga are interested.


1.) 26 Apr 2022 17:40:25
Cant be that good if RBLepzieg wanty let him go fur zilch.


2.) 26 Apr 2022 18:18:14
I honestly don't know enough about the lad to judge etc mate but if they are willing to release hin early it is maybe a red flag.


 

 

08 Mar 2022 13:43:25
Speaking to an old mucker earlier regarding possible summer recruitment, ha's zero official ties to the club in anyway anymore but still hears the odd bit of info here and there so grain of salt and all that.
Sam Johnstone still very much in our minds, but with Man Utd looking at him as well as number 2 for next season this looks increasingly unlikely, although the boy will want to be a number 1, moat like in the EPL.
Gustavo Hamer still on the radar, worked under Gio before.
Pablo Torres has signed for Barcelona ending that.
Apparently a 2 year offer may or may not have been put forward to shalke keeper Martin Fraisl, shalke deny this
And Xavi Simmons likely to sign much improved long term contract with psg.


1.) 08 Mar 2022 20:40:29
Gustavo Hammer just signed a new contract with Coventry yesterday so that’s a no.


2.) 08 Mar 2022 22:47:11
Meaning what? Meaning Coventry can demand a higher transfer fee is all that means. Doesn't mean he can't or won't leave.


3.) 08 Mar 2022 22:59:39
Gers are you trying to say that because someone has signed a new contract that there is no chance of us getting him in the summer?


4.) 09 Mar 2022 07:47:53
Think that's exactly what he's meant mate, simply means his club are covering their backsides and potentially sensing some activity on the player therefor making sure they are in the strongest possible position to negotiate in the summer.


5.) 09 Mar 2022 13:13:03
Ger I don’t think we were ever in the market for pablo Torres’s or Simmons.
As u point out Torres’s signs for Barcelona B, for 5 million rising to 20 million and has a sell on clause of 100 million euros. We r not at that table.
Simmons is apparently worth more.
There is serious interest from us for Johnstone assuming McGregor retires.
I’m not so sure we will pay 4/ 5 million for Hamer, his goals and assists r not great in English championship.
We appear to still have serious interest in doehki and amazu, who we have watched three times since Xmas.
This is akin to how we tracked sakala and lundstrum
Also talking to my source who has delivered a few gems in last two years we definitely are after Palmer, but this could hinge on CL or Europa league, one year loan with option off another year
There is also serious interest in someone from Arsenal, I’m working on name.


6.) 09 Mar 2022 14:01:26
Ger88, yes that is what I’m saying. Yes of course it’s still ‘possible’ to sign players who have committed to a new contract at a club however: 1) The fact he’s signed a new contract suggests that he’s perfectly happy where he is, if he was wanting to move on and with his contract running out it’s likely he would hold off signing a new contract in order to get the best deal possible for himself on a Bosman (ie what Goldson is doing and what the likes of Lundstrum and Sakala did before coming to us) . 2) If we were seriously interested in him it’s likely contact would of made contact quite a while ago, discussions would of been held / ongoing and if he was interested he wouldn’t of signed a new contract at Coventry (see my first point) . 3) As John has said, with him signing a new contract and his value now being at very least 4 or 5 million, I very much doubt that we would spend that on a ‘slightly above average’ Midfielder who currently plays for Coventry, especially if we could of potential got him for free if he hadn’t signed a new contract. You say it means that the club are simply covering their back but remember a club can’t ‘force’ a player to sign a new contract, the player has to want to. All of which leads to my above points and as to why I suggested there is no chance we’ll be signing him.


7.) 09 Mar 2022 14:35:43
Gers good post, however his contract was to June 23 so we would be guilty of tapping.

He is only doing what kamara just did at rangers, mb a pay rise and a set sell on that allows him to talk to other clubs.


8.) 09 Mar 2022 16:36:21
Hi John, admit I thought it was this year his contract was running out, however my point was more that, even if we did have any interest in the guy (which I actually doubt seeing as he is a name that’s been ‘linked’ to us for the past two years now, yet there’s never been any actually firmed up contact, and also some of the Celtic pages were linking him with them recently as well… seems like typical agent mischief or lazy journalism), then with the situation as it is now ie, him signing a contract extension, I seriously doubt that he’s a player we’ll see coming to us any time in the near future.


9.) 09 Mar 2022 17:05:41
I agree gers, I think it’s an agent bugging up a player.


10.) 09 Mar 2022 17:53:44
Who's the boy palmer?


11.) 09 Mar 2022 18:27:07
And I totally agree that it likely is an agent trying to garner a better deal for his client, that happens all the time but could also be something along the lines of Coventry say here's a new contract, if you sign you'll be one of the club's highest earners and in doing so if an offer matches our valuation in the summer and you fancy it we will give you permission to speak to them, if not you'll still be one of our highest earners u til at least Jan. Lots of moving parts go into this it's not as easy to just dismiss something. And i's there any further info on the boy Doehki yet John? Would hope that with Souttars apparent injury this might force gio and the board to act now and get him tied down.


12.) 09 Mar 2022 19:31:28
One Walter boy at Man City. Will be the next foden

Doehki says he will sign for a team in cl.


13.) 13 Mar 2022 08:39:12
Doehki could be our Van Dijk, he has that level of potential.


14.) 13 Mar 2022 19:54:56
AC I’d be absolutely delighted if we get doehki, as it means we will be in CL.


15.) 14 Mar 2022 19:05:56
I wouldn't be surprised if Morelos ended up at arsenal next year with his euro record and fact he will not be a crazy fee typical of an arsenal target also he would have a Spanish speaking manager and a manager with links to rangers too. Add to that they are maybe two strikers short squad wise.


 

 

30 Jan 2022 14:16:23
We are close to signing 17 yo Romanian lb Kevin ciubotaru. Had trials at Arsenal Spurs Chelsea and Watford but work permit issues stopped any deal.

Also congratulations to Rafael Nadal, mens goat and a sporting icon.


1.) 30 Jan 2022 16:46:12
Not sure we need another lb after signing one yesterday, time will tell.


2.) 30 Jan 2022 16:48:38
Hes been with the youth for a while supposedly but hasn't been able to sign till 18. Just from what I've read.


3.) 30 Jan 2022 16:48:49
Will be a B team signing.


4.) 30 Jan 2022 17:00:41
Will be a b team addition. Really need another of first 11 players brought in. Any news?


5.) 30 Jan 2022 17:22:22
16 million in the bank we go for freebies and and kids says it all.


6.) 30 Jan 2022 18:18:09
Big blue bear so we don’t sign academy players and develop for the future,


7.) 30 Jan 2022 18:32:07
We need players that can walk into the first team and make a difference. Wilson hasn't signed one player that falls into that category!


8.) 30 Jan 2022 19:29:14
Agree berkshireblue, this window has been frustrating, we've brought in nearly 17million in the last few months, yet none of that money has been invested in players that would improve the first team, players bought in the last number of windows have not been good enough.


9.) 30 Jan 2022 19:53:04
Big blue bear I kinda agree but developing young players between age of 18-21 is now crucial for european squad also nothing wrong with a free transfer Aas long as he is decent quality at worst you can punt them for couple hundred k next year but I do agree we should be signing at least a quality midfielder lundstrum will be gone jack injuries Davis age kamara and aribo eyeing prem and hagi injured surprised we've not added already.


10.) 30 Jan 2022 21:43:19
Mark44 what do you want the management to do, just spend the money on anyone they can get for the sake of it? Don't you think they've been trying to bring in more quality?
I'm positive that the work going on behind the scenes is both tough and frustrating because as soon as we make an inquiry the player's price rises as the selling clubs know we have money to spend and are looking hard.
That's the completely negative part of the January window - you pay a premium if you need someone in now and that is a gamble we've taken too often and lost.


11.) 30 Jan 2022 22:02:07
Tavsonloyal I want some of the money we've got recently spent on a few good players to improve the starting 11, for a number of years now wilson has signed players not good enough, every window it's the same free signings who have had little impact on the first team.


12.) 30 Jan 2022 22:19:33
Tbf big blue bear . Diallo looked outstanding. Another couple of loans in his calibre to win the league would be sensible imo. Then invest in the summer when players are easier to get?

Is gio an absolute genius?


 

 

04 May 2022 23:18:57
Well as my old mucker coops and a few others on here may have read, I have had a near 30 year love affair with Real Madrid (I'm 34 this year 😅) but that tonight was absolute heart in mouth unbelievable stuff. I don't know if my ticker can take tomorrow's main event now 😂. But what late drama and excitement, that's why we love the game. And best of luck to our Ed, looking forward to a rematch of the 2018 final and hopefully it will be contested by the champions of both countries.


1.) 05 May 2022 07:48:29
Crazy how that game played out🫣. City had it won and blew it in 5 mins. Fair play to Real Madrid.

Now for the big one👍

Lets go Rangers❤️🤍💙.


2.) 05 May 2022 08:11:30
I had money on Real Madrid correct score to win 3-1 at 25/ 1 but it only applied to the score after 90 minutes. Gutted or what!?


3.) 05 May 2022 08:52:42
I had them 12/ 5 to win in 90.


4.) 05 May 2022 10:16:24
I was just about to change channels as I though game was over when Madrid scored I still thought it was over and again was about to change over when the second went in, what an ending to a game Man City blew it must be gutted but well done Madrid just shows the game is never over till that fat lady sings.


5.) 05 May 2022 10:58:48
Breathtaking television. We need to show the same never give up attitude tonight and if it is not enough then there is no more we can do. Whatever happens, so proud of the boys and many thanks for a wonderful campaign ❤💙🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧.


6.) 05 May 2022 13:28:45
Correct seeker.


 

 

22 Apr 2022 07:51:35
So Morton were the team who voted against var, not celtic or arbroath etc. Interesting as to know why, because realistically its never going to affect them.


1.) 22 Apr 2022 10:19:53
Maybe that's why though? Won't affect them but they pick up part of the cost? I had read it was cost and they had reservations about impact of how it affected the game as a spectacle.


2.) 22 Apr 2022 13:22:37
Would they still get charged for it mate? Thought it was just the 12 spfl teams or am I wrong.


3.) 22 Apr 2022 13:47:42
Don’t think it would cost them anything, every team got a vote but I’m sure it’s only spl teams that will pay for it, that’s my understanding of it anyway.


4.) 22 Apr 2022 14:58:29
Aw see I thought it was a sliding scale through all 42 clubs but good chance I am wrong though 🤣.


5.) 22 Apr 2022 15:29:11
Snell only top 12 involved.


6.) 22 Apr 2022 16:13:01
Not like me to be wrong John 😜 very weird reasoning from them then because they definitely mentioned money.


7.) 22 Apr 2022 16:57:44
Yes I thought that, however they at least gave their reason.


 

 

15 Apr 2022 16:22:33
Well done lads for an incredible and almost heart stopping night last night. And I won't hear any differently Tav IS a rangers club legend now. Your full of the brown stuff if you thing otherwise. And also cheery bye sweep ye shall be missed pal, like a hole in the head. Hope everyone is good and in work with big smiles on their faces and let's keep this going into Sunday. 🔴⚪🔵.


1.) 15 Apr 2022 17:05:44
Was indeed a tremendous performance and result, to a man we we re superb. But as in true Rangers style, we all aged a few years with the nail-biting finish when we had so many chances to kill them off. If we play like that more consistently then we should fear no one.


2.) 15 Apr 2022 17:48:39
Tav is a legitimate club legend in my book!


 

 

06 Apr 2022 22:20:48
Take a bow Benzema.


1.) 07 Apr 2022 12:38:25
The best striker in the World just now by far.

They spoke last week, John just said that and it's 50/ 50 that he's 100% definitely maybe going to sign with us.

McKay is a decent player, and has shown glimpses at the jambos, but he'd just he squad filler imo and wouldn't be a starting 11 player able to take us up a level.
